In his message, Damijo explained all the anxiety he went through over the last five years that he toyed with the idea. He also had a word of encouragement for anyone having doubt in starting a new venture.
Below is his full message “New ventures are never easy. From conception to execution is fraught with all kinds of challenges and emotional roller coster. Here am not now even talking money or the resources.
Just dealing with the moments of self doubt, nay-sayers, criticisms some constructive, others condemning, some destructive many reassuring.
Sometimes it is a battle to keep the negatives down and stay in prayer and trust God to be God.
You would think that after all these years in the business me wanting to do a TV series of my own would not be a big deal right? Lie. It has been an uphill journey as I am as challenged if not even more so than most people who have taken up similar ventures. I am my own worst critic and i set standards for myself that sometimes my partners call unfair but hey, it is what it is.
